    If you have the 64 bit version of Windows 10, there is normally no good reason to run the 32 bit version of VCDS. I am pretty sure that the reason for the installation option to "install the 32 bit...

    I won't argue that point. My only issue is that my old single core Acer has a cool VCDS sticker on it, but it now has very limited use.
